It could be a line from “God Bless America” or the Pledge of Allegiance that will unlock memories that have been very hard to reach.
Azura Memory Care’s Director of Community Relations Tammy Pence said music as well as representational items have become a core part of Azura’s programming for those suffering from dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease.
“We want them to touch the decor,” Pence said. “It is amazing how some of our residents who can’t speak but can still sing “God Bless America” when they see the American flag.”
On Thursday, from 2:30 – 5:30 p.m., the public is invited to attend the unveiling of Azura Memory Care’s new purposely redesigned building at 2086 Colony Court in Beloit to see the facility’s new updates including its cutting edge model for caring for those with Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia.

"We want to thank you for the loving special care you took of our mother, Diane. It was truly mom's home and you all became part of our family. Everything was home for her....from the beautiful rooms, large sunny windows all around, good food made with love, fun and personal activities from people who really loved our mom. We would highly recommend your facility to anyone. The staff from the director, to the doctor, to the nurse, to the caregivers and the maintenance man were all extremely helpful, caring, loving and professional. There are not enough words to say how much we appreciate all of you. Your exceptional care, kindness, and love were beyond anything we could have imagined. You were part of our family, and we will miss you." - Gail Sommers and Deborah Guse
